    Excelsior no longer accepts MA's for their nursing program, but there is a school of nursing called Deaconess that will, I think, though the price is terribly expensive.

    go to www.deaconess.edu they have an online program which gives you the option to be an lpn after 3 semesters and continue on another 2 semesters to receive your adn. Check out the site, they enroll every semester. oct 1 is deadline for jan start. College is in st louis, MO though and you will be required to take about 4 or 5 trips there at semester ends for clinical skills evaluation. You will also need to find a clinical site in your area. Also call your BON to make sure there are no restrictions in your state for this program. Good luck. Colleen

    Just a little correction, it is 3LPN and 3 more for ADN. It was 4 and 3 up until the last year. Just didn't want anyone to bite you because of this error!

    Oops! I keep forgetting they have 6 semesters total for adn. I guess I have too many different nursing programs rolling around in my head that I get things mixed up a bit. Thank you for saving me. Opalm, you are a true angel!! colleen
